Facing a life of loose limbs

The Washington Post recently featured patient Kelly Koep in an article by Jeff Leen. Kelly shares her experiences living with Ehlers-Danlos syndrome, or EDS, a genetic disorder that can cause frequent bruising, joint hypermobility, skin hyperelasticity and weakness of tissues, and her hope for the future following a spinal fusion by Dr Henderson. In addition to the article, there is an exceptional gallery featuring photos, like the one to the right, by Michael S. Williamson.

To learn more about Ehlers-Danlos syndrome, watch Dr. Henderson's EDS presentation during a Chiari & Syringomyelia Foundation seminar and visit The Ehlers-Danlos National Foundation
